There are still a few copies of our magazine available. Do get one if you haven’t had your copy yet. It is good value at only 80p! It relies for its quality on YOUR contributions. Have you written anything for it yet? Doesn’t have to be long, or very literate, just share your ideas thoughts, experiences etc. Has anyone written about any of our Easter services/events yet?

St Thomas church is open regularly on Tuesday and Saturday mornings, so people can drop in, look around, pray or just sit. For this to happen, we need volunteers to sit in church (Could be in the back room !) Can you help with this? Can you spare an hour now and again? See Edith or sign the list please.

There are many many ways of keeping in touch with what is going on in our churches –get to check out our blogspot and the facebook links. Churches Together has a web site and a new facebook page too…… If you are on e mail make sure we have your address so we can send the weeklty newsletters and dates.
